Emmie Liebregts

(Tilburg 1996) works and lives in Breda.
Liebregts’ work stems from experiences around personal space, safety and discomfort. Through her, often sculptural, works she looks for ways to share them.


I lie on a slatted base, hugged by the mattress. The sound of voices echoes through the room. I look at the ceiling through the mesh and my in the meantime fogged glasses. I decide to get up. Slowly I start to move and get myself free from the mattress, with my legs and the ends of my arms still hugged in. I sit here for a moment, thinking about my next step or whether it is better to disappear back into the mattress. No, I am going out, after all I am already sitting upright. All that remains, between in and out, is to get my legs to move across the bed and toward the floor. Now I stand, start to walk around the bed and begin looking out the window.
